Triple-Shots are way cool, Frank. Did you have any part in the dev of those?

Re: NGD Black 540R


Triple Shots are the brainchild of Jamie Shane (formerly of Canned Heat) a fellow Chicagoan moved to SoCal, but back in the 60's. He's in his 70's now and could still beat you up. Decades ago he made his first with a pocket knife. Then Dremels and mills. It wasn't until micro-switch technology came up to speed thanks to cellphones and whatnot that we figured we could do something pretty stealth and still get good sound quality and reliability. Those are "e-switches" rated for 10,000 cycles. My involvement simply was making it happen. I can't claim any of the smarts.

Nice Radius. 440R?

"The Ibanez 440RHH, also known as the 440R-HH, is a Radius series guitar model introduced in 1988. It is similar to the 540RHH but has Japanese made pickups instead of US made DiMarzio pickups."

Did you pick this up overseas?

Duh. If you're in Greece I suppose so.

Nice. You see HSS or HSH ones more often; wouldn't mind one at all , in red or blue though.

Yeap, these had V1 V2 pickups like the RG550 series I think. These are long gone and a chrome set of MoeJoe and PafJoe took their place, along wth the chrome harware.
